Salomon and Szlama #general

dee lindsay <lindsaysister@...>
 

Hello all,

Tonight, I came across multiple birth records with the
names Salomon SZTENCEL and Nacha z BALSAM listed as
the parents. However, I found one record that listed
Szlama SZTENCEL and Nacha BALSAM as the parents. This
record was for 1833. I saw records both before and
after 1833 with the name Salomon as the father, so I
do not think Szlama could be a 2nd husband.

Also, there is a record that lists Salomon as the
father, yet the signature reads Szlama. Coincidently,
the record just above this one had a Szlama SZTENCEL
listed as a witness....but the signature read Salomon
SZTENCEL.

So, I'm hoping someone out there can advise me.....

Are the names Salomon and Szlama at all
interchageable?

Are these names typically used together?--This family
is >from the area of Czestochowa, Poland if that helps.

Is one name possibly a religious name and one the
Polish name? Would this have been the custom for
someone born around 1810? Would one name therefore
typically be signed in Hebrew and one in Polish?

Other thoughts and ideas???

Thank you,
Dee Lindsay

Searching for Stzik HALPERN's descendants #ukraine

Arthur <arthurh@...>
 

Hello Genners,

I'm searching for Stzik HALPERN's descendants. He came to Ellis Island on
March 4, 1914, on the SS Ryndam >from Rotterdam, married, aged 34, from
Kamenetz.

I think that Stzik HALPERN was the brother of my father Samuel HALPERN, born
1884, who came to Ellis Island on December 2, 1904, on the SS Chemnitz from
Bremen, single, aged 20, >from Kamenetz. Samuel married my mother in Montreal
in 1914 and had 3 children there - Eva, William and Aron (that's me).

My father's ( ? and Stzik's ? ) father was my grandfather Alimelach HALPERN,
born about 1860 and died in 1908 in Kamenetz. My grandmother was Tzipporra
(maiden name unknown to me), died 1914.

If anyone knows anything about Stzik HALPERN and/or his descendants, please
contact me.

Thank you in advance

Arthur HALPERN

Searching SHEDLOVER from Kiev area #ukraine

Roth, Sharon J. <sroth@...>
 

Hi, I'm new to this list so please forgive me if I'm making a genealogical
faux pas by posting a personal search, but I've come up dry on all other
areas of Jewishgen, as well as census records and passenger records.

I'm searching for my great-grandmother Celia SHEDLOVER (married name
SILVERSTEIN), >from the Kiev area. She was born ~1890, the youngest of six
sisters, all whom emigrated to Philadelphia. The other sisters were Mindla,
Bessie, Rebecca, Kay, and one other whom I haven't been able to identify.
They all clearly used the SHEDLOVER name in the U.S.; I have multiple
address lists showing the "SHEDLOVER Cousins Club," whereby all of the
children of these sisters would get together periodically. However, there
aren't any people carrying the SHEDLOVER name left, as the five sisters who
married obviously changed their names (SILVERSTEIN, BERMAN, AVIRGAN,
HOFFMAN, BLUESTEIN) - Kay SHEDLOVER was the only sister who stayed single,
and obviously has no descendants.

Through Jewishgen family finder, I did find someone researching
SHIDLOVER/SHYDLOWER but we cannot yet identify a linkage. My next step is
to obtain the Social Security application for Kay SHEDLOVER, the one family
member that I can identify as having a Social Security number. But until
then, I thought I'd ask this list for any linkage. Thanks in advance!

I suggest you get in touch with the Foundation Center, 79 5th Ave, New
York, NY phone 212 620-4230. They have information on all sorts of
foundations, principally I think to help people in applyhing for grants.
I remember going down there a number of years ago and they are still in
the phone book.

I'm not familiar with the Hebrew for Manish, but Getzel is usually
associated with the Hebrew name Elyakum (no idea why though). Its a very
common combined name: Elyakum Getzel.

Re: SS Southern Cross 1926 #general

jcamhi@...
 

I just received a copy of my grandfathers naturalization information,
Nuchim BUCHMAN, and am wanting to verify and gain information on his
families vayage to the States. However, I am unable to verify any voyage
on the ship SS Southern Cross arriving in New York on February 1, 1926
from Rio de Janiero, Brazil. The only record the Morton Allen Dir. has
is for an arrival in 1901. I do understand that a ship by the same name
sunk in the early 1900's.

I can verify that the ship made southern American runs during this time
and was sold in 1926 to the Munsel Line and later to the US Navy, but can
find no information on it's earlier voyages. Any guidance as to where to
obtain additional info on this ship and voyage would be great.
